Sophie Dance Recital Photos | Behind the Scenes Look at the Tiny Little Dancers

Oh my goodness gracious great balls of fire.  This might be the cutest thing I’ve ever photographed.

I was invited by Reyana from Sophie Dance Atwater to document their annual recital at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles.   I grew up dancing and have always had a passion for the movement arts.  Combining two of my great loves – photography & dance – was a dream come true.  Here you’ll find some of the highlights from behind the scenes plus some shots from the actual recital.  Get ready to oooh and aaah at the lovely little dancers!

ps. How could I go a full post without mentioning birthdays…they also host parties at Sophie Dance, take a look here for more info!

dog birthday event photography puppy animal rescue

A Puppy Reunion (yes, you heard me right) | The REAL Bark Dog Rescue, Echo Park | LA Event Photography

I got together with the REAL bark dog rescue to document this puppy reunion!  All of her pups were adopted out a year ago and brought back together last weekend for a little party/meet and greet.  It was pretty similar to documenting a kid’s birthday party – a lot of energy, a little bit of chaos, and a whole lotta love.  Mavis from the animal rescue obviously has a gift for placing homeless pups with loving families, what a joy to capture it all.

If you’re looking to adopt or foster in LA check them out here -> the REAL bark, Echo Park

kids birthday party photography los angeles art bus

Hannah’s 8th Birthday & The Art Bus | Kids Birthday Party Photography Pacific Palisades

This is my new favorite party idea.  A sparkling white bus pulls up to your party and the kids are free to paint all over it!  When do you ever have the chance to paint your heart out on such a giant canvas?  Dream come true.  Hannah had the creative idea to paint her hand in rainbow colors to decorate the bus (see photo above) and had the chance to flex her creativity even more inside the bus.  Slime was made, faces were painted, mustaches were drawn, hair was glitterized, fun was had…Thanks for throwing such an amazing party Daniell!

Frankie Turns 5 | Birthday Bash at Bob Baker Marionette Theater | Kids Party Photography Los Angeles

Photographing Frankie’s birthday here was a dream come true!  I had always heard such spectacular things about Bob Baker Marionette Theater but never had the chance to drop by for a visit.  Luckily, Michelle and Fernando contacted me to document their daughter’s 5th birthday there on Sunday and SPECTACULAR it was.  The marionette show was as masterful and whimsical as you could imagine, I will absolutely return for another show on my own.  The kids (and adults) were thoroughly entertained as the puppets whizzed past them or got a little personal and sang melodies on their laps.  A very special place indeed, thanks for inviting me there to document Michelle and Fernando!

Audrey Turns 7 | A Unicorn Party | Kids Birthday Photography Los Angeles

I met Audrey and her family when she was just under 2 years old!  I can’t believe how much time has passed.  Audrey has made the transition from off balance toddler to full blown unicorn, and what a lovely unicorn she has become.  I absolutely adored the theme and all the magical details throughout the party.  Also, there were bubbles, and if you know me you know I LOVE bubbles.  Audrey frolicked around in her flower dress and had the best time ever, thanks for inviting me to capture it Ward fam!

How to Party Like an Archaeologist | Noah’s 6th Birthday | Kids Party Photography Santa Monica

This was a first for me…party like an Archaeologist!  Such a fun and creative activity to keep the kids entertained and learning along the way.  A scavenger hunt in ancient Egypt, what could be cooler (and of course treasure is involved).  It was too fun watching the kids running around and oh so serious about cracking the codes.  Thanks for having me there to document Christa!  Happy 6th Noah!
